PHYS 183 - General Physics III with Laboratory

An integrated experimental and analytical investigation of topics in electricity and magnetism. This integrated lecture/laboratory course includes the analysis of physical systems using algebra, trigonometry, and calculus along with inquiry-based activities and experimental investigation.  Formerly PHYS 213, students may not receive credit for both.

Prerequisite: PHYS 181 and MATH 173. Corequisite: MATH 173.

Credits: (5)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Correctly describe and explain key physics topics in electricity and magnetism as well as key components of those main concepts.
  • Demonstrate an ability to solve problems in kinematics and dynamics using the appropriate physical principles and techniques.
  • Demonstrate enhanced quantitative reasoning skills and mathematical analysis skills.
  • Demonstrate an ability to properly analyze and interpret data and experimental uncertainty in order to make meaningful comparisons between experimental measurements or observation and theory.
